Our most recent work on developing shared services in the HE sector has been to work in partnership with sector bodies to address the impact of Value Added Tax (VAT).
Our initial approach to developing shared services throughout the sector was to identify and fund areas of shared service activity through our Procurement and Shared Services budget. We invited views and funded a series of feasibility studies. We have subsequently identified partner institutions and funded pilot projects.
We have also funded research in this area:
In July 2006 we published a report by KPMG which detailed the extensive range of existing shared services in higher education, many of which have operated for some time.
